For the closing event in the Kilbourn Concert Series this season, it's all about the future with "Rising Stars of the Metropolitan Opera." Esteemed artists such as Rochester native Renée Fleming, Stephanie Blythe, and Thomas Hampson were once ascendant newcomers with burgeoning careers. Who knows what's in store for the next crop of young talent to sing in the hallowed halls of the Met? Singers who have performed in the "Rising Stars" series this season include soprano Janai Brugger, mezzo-soprano Cecelia Hall, and tenor Sean Panikkar. You'll undoubtedly be seeing and hearing a lot from this cadre of singers for years to come.
The "Rising Stars of the Metropolitan Opera" will perform on Tuesday, March 22, Kilbourn Hall, Eastman School of Music, 26 Gibbs Street. 8 p.m. $20-$30. 454-2100; eastmantheatre.org.
